A vicious serial sex killer is on the loose, and landscape gardener and shop-window outfitter Loris is the prime suspect, thanks to his unfortunate habit of getting caught in compromising situations (for which there is always a totally innocent explanation that the police fail to spot). Undercover policewoman Jessica is assigned by eccentric police psychologist Taccone to follow Loris and provide evidence for his arrest - but things don't quite go according to plan...Written by

The French cast said all their lines in French. There were all later dubbed in Italian by different actors. See more »
The version released in the U.S.A. omits one four minute sequence which takes place early in the film and sets up Loris' (Benigni's) adversarial relationships with the manager of his apartment building as well as the little girl who throws dead cats in his apartment . The scene involves a tenants meeting inside a school gym. Loris has voted against the entire body and is invited to voice his objections. The manager ends up pursuing Loris to the top of a basketball hoop upon which the little girl shoots him with a water gun. Loris falls through the hoop which breaks and he ends up leaving with as much dignity as he can muster with the hoop net over his body. See more »
This is one of the funniest movies of all time. Roberto Benigni is the definitive next-generation Charlie Chaplain. His use of camera angles to get the dummies in compromising positions, depending on how it's seen, and the way he can include so many different characters so effectively in the movie is amazing. My favorite scene is when the Detective is analyzing Loris when Loris leaves the restaurant. "Now he is punishing it - 'No, not in public'" and "And we can all see what this means." If you want to see it, I've seen the film at Jumbo video in the foreign films section. I advise that you go out and rent it IMMEDIATELY! I gave it a ten, and so will you.
